Review ♥ CRAYON TOUCH ME Eyebrow Mascara (Light Brown & Soft Brown) / クレヨンタッチミー アイブロウマスカラ (ライトブラウン&ソフトブラウン)

I was not satisfied with the last eyebrow mascara I've used so I'm still searching for a good one. I've never tried a product from Crayon Touch Me before but there are good reviews with the brand despite of being cheap so I'm hoping that this product much better than the previous one.

     I bought these from Can Do, a 100 Japanese Yen variety shop in Japan, at their Shibuya branch and each costs 100 Japanese Yen (tax not included). I have searched Google and found out that there are resellers outside Japan but the price is much higher. 

     The design of the packaging is really cute. I don't know why but almost all of the 100 Japanese Yen cosmetics have really cute packaging. They really out an effort to make the packaging persuading.

 There are 3 shades of this but there are only 2 available shades at the branch where I bought these. The shades that I got are light brown and soft brown. The other shade that I don't have is natural brown.

Review ♥ L.A. COLORS Liquid Makeup (LM281 Buff)

I am already familiar with the L.A. Colors brand. I've known them for having affordable makeup products but I've never own one before. So, this is my first product from them and let's see if the quality is good. 

     I bought this from Thank You Mart, a 390 Japanese Yen shop in Takeshita Street, Japan for 390 Japanese Yen (tax not included). That is the only place I know where you can get L.A. Colors products in Japan except for Amazon online. It is available worldwide.
     According to L.A. Colors, this is a long wearing liquid makeup covers and evens out skin tone for a flawless looking complexion. Lightweight, yet covers and conceals imperfections and this is perfect for all skin types.
     It has a pump so it is very easy to use. The pump has a cover so that pumping the foundation out accidentally will be avoided.

Review ♥ EMBRYOLISSE LABORATORIES Lait-Creme Concentre (Multi-function Nourishing Moisturizer) / アンブリオリス モイスチャークリーム <保湿クリーム>

I haven't heard of this product before nor the name of the brand so I have no idea about this. But when I searched on the internet, it seems that this is a famous product among artists. This is a moisturizer but it is said that it can also be used as a primer and this is good for all skin types.

      I didn't bought this product. It was included in my Bloombox and I only got a sample size. It has 3 different full sizes; 30ml for 1500 Japanese Yen, 50ml for 1800 Japanese Yen, and 75ml for 2800 Japanese Yen.

Review ♥ TONYMOLY Delight Tony Tint Nail (01 Cherry Pink) / トニモリ ティントネイル (01 チェリーピンク)

I love lip tints and actually, most of my lip products are tints. So when I came across with this tint nail,  I grabbed one right away. I have already used this a few times before but I have never tried applying another layer after the first layer.

     Though you can buy this from Tonymoly shops and some online stores, I bought mine from a drugstore in Japan because at first, I didn't knew it was from Tonymoly. There is only one available shade at that time so I have no choices. I can't remember the price but it is not more than 1,000 Japanese Yen.       According to Tonymoly, the shade of this tint nail is similar to their lip tint which is also cherry pink. Just like lip tints, this product is said to color your nails with tint for a dazzling gradation look.

Lucky Bag ♥ ETUDE HOUSE 2018 / 福袋エチュードハウス2018

Every new year, here in Japan, almost all of the shops sell fukubukuro or lucky bag which contains items that are unknown until you open it. The total price of the items inside is twice and usually thrice the price of the lucky bag. If you're lucky, you'll get more than thrice. I wanted to buy a lot but I have other priorities so I only got to buy 1 fukubukuro this year but this is from one of my favorite makeup brands.

     I never expected to be able to buy a lucky bag from Etude House because it was already January 3 when I went to the shop in Shibuya109. I thought that the lucky bag was already sold out since January 1 but I was surprised that there are still 4 bags.
     Unlike the other lucky bags, the items inside of this can be seen even before you purchase it so I am already assured that everything inside will satisfy me. All of the lucky bags available has the same items inside so there's no need to buy two but if the items we're different, I would have buy mor…

Review ♥ DAISO Ever Bilena Liquid Foundation (Beige) / ダイソーエバビレーナリキッドファンデーションブラシ(ベージュ)

My favorite foundation is about to run out and I need to find a replacement soon before I emptied it. I don't wanna buy the same foundation because I want to discover and try other brands. It doesn't have to be pricey and if I fail on a particular foundation, I will still continue to find the one that is right for me.

     I can't remember the branch where I bought this but this is from Daiso and it costs 100 Japanese yen (tax not included). I've already seen this a several times before and I believe that this one is also available at Daiso's branch that are outside Japan. 
     This has no packaging. It is just wrapped with a protective plastic where the bar-code, ingredients, and English precautions are also indicated.

     Here are the information, instruction, precaution, and ingredients: Information: Everbilena Liquid Foundation C: Beige Instruction: Please take a proper quantity to a finger or sponge, and lengthen it well to the whole face. Precaution: If some…
